‘They gave me a shot in each leg. ‘What if I lose her?’ It seemed like seconds before the nurses returned with news.’: Couple welcomes rainbow baby after ectopic pregnancy, ‘I regained my belief in miracles’

by pregnancy journalist
“I’ll never forget that painful moment when the nurse closed the door behind her and I looked over at Mike, my partner, as he broke down.  We sat there in disbelief, sobbing in each other’s arms. It seemed like only seconds had passed before the nurses returned to administer the medication that would terminate our pregnancy. A shot in each leg, leaving me crippled with an emotional pain I had never experienced before.  I had discovered I was pregnant only three days earlier. I was overjoyed at the thought of starting a family with the person I loved most in […]

Ashley Ryan, wife of New York Giants free safety Logan Ryan, shared Wednesday in her Instagram stories that she had emergency surgery for an ectopic pregnancy earlier this week after checking into the emergency room for abdominal pain. “The rollercoaster of 2020 continues,” Ashley wrote in her post, explaining that after the November 2 Monday Night Football game between the Giants and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, she spoke with Logan on the phone, telling him she’d been having extreme pain in her abdomen. “Logan had just left the facility after getting post-game treatment and texted one of the Giants’ trainers […]

Ectopic Pregnancy Is Part Of The Abortion Debate Because Pro-Birthers Are Rabid Beasts

by pregnancy journalist
Sigh. Here we go again. Or maybe not again, but rather, here we still are. Still arguing that a woman’s health and life are insignificant. That a woman has no right to make choices about what gets poked and prodded into her. That she has no say in what happens to her reproductive system. That ironically (and absurdly), those who claim to be “pro-life” are willing to risk a woman’s life by denying her a critical medical procedure that could save not only the mother herself, but also possibly save her chances to have children in the future. This is […]

’90 Day Fiance’: Laura Swears On Her Son’s Life About Her Ectopic Pregnancy, On A Vacation In Ecuador

by pregnancy journalist
We have seen 90 Day Fiance couple Aladin and Laura involved in some pretty petty issues. How can we forget the great vibrator situation and how Aladin completely freaked out about it! Well, this time, things have escalated to a whole new level. According to Laura, Aladin blocked her, and she was desperate to get his attention. As for her pregnancy, we can’t call it completely fake, and we can’t say that Lara was totally honest about it. Sounds puzzling, right? Let’s take a look at what’s going on in detail. 90 Day Fiance: Laura In Ecuador Right Now talker_of_shits […]

Woman who had her womb removed nearly died because of a rare ectopic pregnancy | Daily Mail Online

by pregnancy journalist
A woman nearly died after she became pregnant despite having her womb removed six years earlier. In a case believed to be only the third of its kind ever recorded, the 32-year-old went to hospital in Ethiopia with abdominal pain and vomiting. She was confused, had a rapid heart rate, laboured breathing and a swollen torso, and doctors realised she had gone into shock because of massive blood loss. Medics found an embryo, which didn’t survive, had been growing for 13 weeks on the ‘stump’ which was left of her cervix after the uterus above it had been removed. A […]

The Century-Old ‘Science Fiction’ Behind Ohio Rep’s Bill Covering Nonexistent Ectopic Pregnancy Treatment – Rewire.News

by pregnancy journalist
Ohio Rep. John Becker (R) drew widespread criticism last week for an anti-abortion bill that would allow insurance coverage for the “reimplantation” of an ectopic pregnancy into the uterus—a treatment that does not exist. Physicians and pro-choice advocates have called the line in the bill “science fiction,” but Becker told Rewire.News he does have sources to back up his claim: two articles—one more than 100 years old—with anecdotal stories from physicians who claim that “reimplanting” ectopic pregnancies into the uterus is possible. HB 182, which Becker first introduced in April, seeks to ban almost all insurance coverage of abortions in cases […]

Ohio abortion, ectopic pregnancy bill: This Ohio anti-abortion bill says that ectopic pregnancies can be moved to the uterus — but that isn’t scientifically possible – CBS News

by pregnancy journalist
An Ohio state representative introduced a new bill last month, which aims to prohibit insurance coverage of abortions that occur where the mother’s life is not “endangered if the fetus were carried to term.” The bill includes exceptions, including one for a procedure that does not exist. GOP Rep. John Becker introduced House Bill 182, which allows for two situations where insurers could offer coverage for abortion services. One is a “procedure, in an emergency situation, that is medically necessary to save the pregnant woman’s life.” The other, the bill says, is a procedure for an ectopic pregnancy, “that is […]

‘It’s been horrific’: Helen Flanagan rushed to hospital over fears of an ectopic pregnancy

by pregnancy journalist
Soap star Helen Flanagan and her partner Scott Sinclair have just announced the very happy news that they are expecting another baby – a brother or sister for two year old daughter Matilda. Despite her obvious joy at adding to her family, actress Helen Flanagan, 27, has revealed the tough time she’s had in her second pregnancy so far thanks to the same crippling morning sickness that has struck the Duchess of Cambridge down in hers. “It’s going well now but it’s been a really difficult first trimester. It’s been horrific,” Helen told OK! magazine. “I have just just been […]

Woman tells how ectopic pregnancy made her go completely bald

by pregnancy journalist
(Picture: PA Real Life/ Emma Holmes) Emma Holmes, 40, had a burst appendix when she was 16 which damaged her reproductive organs. So it came as a surprise when the former teacher from Redcar, North Yorkshire, became pregnant in 2009. Unfortunately though, she began bleeding heavily and was quickly diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy where the embryo is fertilised outside the womb. Emma had to have keyhole surgery and have her fallopian tube removed meaning the pregnancy could not be saved. She said that her parents were wonderful during the time and it was her mum who’d initially spotted the […]
